  • 150g/5oz onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped herbs, such as marjoram, or 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the tomato sauce

  7. Season the contents with sugar, salt & freshly ground pepper.
  8. Cook the tomatoes until soften.
  9. Heat a frying pan & cook the meatballs for about 10 minutes in about three tablespoons of olive oil.
  10. When they are cooked, put them into an ovenproof dish with the tomato sauce & top with the grated mozzarella. Place under a preheated grill until the cheese has melted.
